ID That Clock

Over the weekend I hosted a book launch party for Jason's Disneyland Almanac (I hope to have photos of that up soon). One of the entertainments that evening was a clock identification game, with the winner entitled to a free copy of the book (or, since the results weren't going to be tallied that night, a refund on a book already purchased). The brave contestants could rely only on their wits; you have the entire universe at your fingertips (which is why you can't win a free book--sorry!).

I had assembled 44 clock photos, 42 of which are current On Stage photos, before discovering just such a game in the June and July 1961 Disneylanders. Afraid that more than one person might know all the current photos (an unnecessary worry, I learned), I included these 16 photos as an "expert edition" of the game. Go ahead and have fun in the comments. I'll post the correct answers in a day or two. Should you wish to concentrate on the difficult ones, nobody correctly identified the following: 1, 3, 13, 18, 22, 28, 30, 40, 43, E-7, E-10, E-11, E-12, E-13, E-15, E-16.

The clock is ticking!

Yes, my wife and I were humbled by your confounding little game fairly quickly, Jason.

Thankfully, and coveniently, you placed the bar within arms reach to allow your guests to blame the liquor for their fuzzy, innaccurate answers. Of course, if not for that...

I think I may have ID'd three clocks correctly.

OK, one.

After three cosmopolitans I never even got over to look at the clocks - I blame Marty the Bartender! Looking at the clocks now I recognize about five!

Hey, great event Jason!!! You and the Schultz's really know how to throw a party - thanks! Awesome book, know that I read it cover to cover, what's next????

'Tis not a matter of braggadocio or pride ... just a very odd clarity which shows me I am spending far too much time in Anna's House :D Happy (nay, embarrassed?) to say I knew each and every clock, spare one, at an instant. Yea, moi!
